You are absolutely correct. The two guitars have so many distinctive features relative to one another that pinning down the finished sound profile would be impossible - indeed, I am reasonably happy that the character is a consequence of all the decisions and components in various measures.
I think this must be true of any well-made guitar, and is an important function of the luthier's art and the processes which go into making an instrument - the detail feeds into and informs the big picture, but in the end, the goal is the big picture, and the success or otherwise of the luthier a reflection of their ability to meet the brief or not. An experienced luthier will know some of the things which add to a desired end-product, a 'master' will have more precise control, I suppose, but in the end, the guitar will come out as itself.
For me, the many distinctive features of both my 'better' guitars add to the pleasure in playing both of them. I'm still learning about them, and my repertoire, and matters of technique, through ongoing experimentation.
